If you think of Argentina, you immediately think of Buenos Aires, the internationally known tango metropolis. However, the country has other exciting cities to offer. Therefore, with NICE you can do your internship in Córdoba, Mendoza or Salta as well. Within the Personal Fit program, an internship is possible in any other city in the country. As we frequently contact new institutions within this program, we have the possibility to adjust the search geographically. If, for instance, you have already been to Argentina for a student exchange, we would be happy to help you organize an internship in this exact city.
NICE neither prescribes a minimum nor a maximum duration for your internship abroad. For highly specific internships it is possible that the company in Argentina expects an extensive training period and therefore wishes for a minimum duration of, for instance, two or three months.
Internships with a very short duration are quite difficult to arrange in Argentina so we usually have to contact significantly more companies to get a positive response. Internships with a short duration can therefore only be realized within the Personal Fit Program.
Our tip: The longer the aspired internship is supposed to last, the more attractive is the applicant for the Argentine companies. In addition, you will gain more experience from your internship abroad: your tasks become more interesting, the more background knowledge you have. This applies, of course, to all internships abroad, be it in South America or in the USA, Australia, Canada, Asia, Europe or Africa …
Unlike in the US, England, Australia or New Zealand, you can rarely work in English in South America. Unfortunately, this also applies to the international operating companies in the country. Therefore, it is important for a discipline-specific internship that you have good Spanish skills and are able to express yourself appropriately.
If you have not completed a language course as part of your studies yet, you can do so before starting your internship abroad in Argentina. We offer many intensive courses to help you learn Spanish quickly and authentically.
Anyone who has already attended a course and comes to South America for the first time will notice one obvious thing on site: Listening comprehension and responding quickly to Spanish are difficult despite all the preparation.
That’s why we’ve developed courses that are focused on these key skills, giving both beginners and advanced learners a good start on site. At our conversation exercises you can put your newly acquired Spanish into practice while our academically trained teachers will teach you the peculiarities of the language that is actually being used. In our Business Spanish course, the teacher can individually address the topic of your internship and the necessary vocabulary.
